Typical liberal press will try to play down Jon Voight's great career (he's not just "Angelina Jolie's dad") because he openly criticizes Barry instead of bowing down to the Obama throne. But of course, if this was your typical Hollywood liberal talking down about President Bush (as many did during W's two terms) we wouldn't hear the end of it, no matter how obsucre they were. Kudos to Voight for risking leftist-Hollwood wrath, speaking openly about his views and daring to take on all the Obama stans on the Left.
You might remember Jon Voight from such films as Anaconda, Pride and Glory and Transformers. Others may remember the actor for his comments made during a GOP Congressional Dinner last night where he said he was "embarrassed" by the popular president and that Obama's leadership would bring the "downfall" of the country. "We are becoming a weak nation," Voight said, calling Obama a "false prophet" and his administration the "Obama oppression."Voight, a conservative, has appeared on Fox News as a commentator in the past, along with the late Ron Silver. Here's what the actor had to say in an Op-Ed for The Washington Times during the run-up to the presidential election in 2008:Sen. Barack Obama has grown up with the teaching of very angry, militant white and black people: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, William Ayers and Rev. Michael Pfleger. We cannot say we are not affected by teachers who are militant and angry. We know too well that we become like them, and Mr. Obama will run this country in their mindset.The Democratic Party, in its quest for power, has managed a propaganda campaign with subliminal messages, creating a God-like figure in a man who falls short in every way. It seems to me that if Mr. Obama wins the presidential election, then Messrs. Farrakhan, Wright, Ayers and Pfleger will gain power for their need to demoralize this country and help create a socialist America.The Democrats have targeted young people, knowing how easy it is to bring forth whatever is needed to program their minds. I know this process well. I was caught up in the hysteria during the Vietnam era, which was brought about through Marxist propaganda underlying the so-called peace movement. The radicals of that era were successful in giving the Communists power to bring forth the killing fields and slaughter 2.5 million people in Cambodia and South Vietnam. Did they stop the war, or did they bring the war to those innocent people? In the end, they turned their backs on all the horror and suffering they helped create and walked away.
